Enable

Habakkuk 3:19 - Bible verse of the day - DailyVerses.net

Joining with the #Five Minute Friday writing community who write for 5 minutes on a one word prompt. Today’s prompt is: Enable

I like this word ‘enable‘ because it conjures up for me the picture that whilst you can’t do something given the right set of tools, encouragement, teaching, learning, power, help etc, that you are then able to do the thing.

But most of all I am thankful that my God enables me to ‘do all things through Him who strengthens me’. He leads me out of my comfort zone and enables me to go beyond that which I would normally go and He enables me to do the thing He has asked of me. He has created me for ‘good works’ and He enables me to do that, even for difficult people. He calls us to preach the gospel/tell our redemption stories and He is teaching me slowly how to do that.

I am thankful that He does not leave me to my own lack and limited abilities, but that He takes me weak, lacking in faith and fearful and He enables me. He enables me to walk in His ways, He enables me to obey His commands; He enables me to love; to live; to give glory to Him.

My God enables me!

  1. Lord, please help that I may walk
    in Your ways, not in mine,
    for my plans are idle talk,
    but Yours are the Divine
    that work Your will through every day,
    through every waking hour,
    and in Your strength I’ll find the way
    to utilize the power
    of faith and hope and charity,
    compassion and fair dealing
    that gives the saints the victory
    and sends the demons reeling,
    aghast at the bright calm serene
    face of Holy discipline.
